Like Likes made their debut in The Legend of Zelda as a common enemy, and has become a recurring enemy in later Zelda games. They are gelatinous slime creatures with a voracious appetite.
Like Likes are known for oozing towards the player, sucking up the player in their wide mouths, and robbing them of their shields before spitting them out. In most Zelda games, they are required to be quickly defeated in order to retrieve their stolen shield. In The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, they even steal the Goron or Zora Tunics if Link happens to wear one at a time.
As an enemy
Like Likes attack by swallowing the nearby player's fighter, damaging them and spitting them out after a short time. Like Likes can be defeated by dealing enough damage to them, which will result in an Like-Like KO bonus where the player receives 500 points for each Like Like KO'd.
The Like Like is one of the only common enemies from Melee to not appear in Smash Run, but it does appear as a collectible trophy.
The Like Like appears as an Advanced-class support spirit.
The Like Like's Spirit Battle uses a Yoshi puppet fighter and is fought on the Great Bay stage's Battlefield form. During the battle, Yoshi favors grabs and throws and the player's fighter occasionally takes damage, referencing the Like Like's nature to suck up and devour its prey, damage them, and spit them out. Also, the floor is sticky, referencing the Like Like's gelatinous body.
